Compliance Officer Outsourcing? RoHS, REACH, ELV, GADSL, IECSC

Our SMALL company has RoHS & REACH compliance documentation. We now have a customer requesting compliance/statements for ELV, GADSL, and IECSC too. Trouble is no-one here has any familiarity with these and certainly not the time to do a lot of studying to change that right now (too many hats on my head as it is, no time to add Compliance Officer to my resume!)

I know the "Compliance Officer" position can be outsourced. Do any of my fellow Q peeps here have any direct experience or knowledge regarding the available resources? Looking for both recommendations and places to avoid.

Thanks in advance for the input! :thanx:

Thanks, Stijloor, for the bump.
Fortunately in the short term our CEO has elected to tell this company that they get what they get, REACH & RoHS. No other regs were discussed during contract negotiations.

In the long run I can see this will come up again and would still like experienced feedback.

I am not extremely familiar with these, but I did a little research on GADSL and found a PDF that includes a brief description (6 pages) and about a 20 page list of the included chemicals. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwiHmuHHyP_NAhVBMSYKHcBDDp4QFgguMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.teses.usp.br%2Fteses%2Fdisponiveis%2F3%2F3133%2Ftde-10012008-104113%2Fpublico%2FAnexo_B_GADSL.pdf&usg=AFQjCNFOPbA3tubY_s0yD1YkABl4aXZnrQ&bvm=bv.127178174,d.eWE

Not too sure about the others. There are several ELV acronyms, and IECSC seems to stand for "Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances in China".

I know this isn't a lot of help, so I hope it helps a little!

Also, I just found out today that REACH has added a new substance to their candidate list. Now up to 169 substances.

Thanks, Tyler. I did some homework before posting =) enough to know I want to explore outsourcing. Thought I'd be the only one who didn't know this alphabet soup:

• REACH (we have declaration)
• RoHS (we have declaration)
• ELV End of Life for Vehicles – EU Directive 67/548/EEC [357 pages; 3000+ list of chemicals] plus EC1272/2008 [2000+ pages]
• GADSL Global Automotive Declarable Substance List. 2000+ substances to check against.
• RISL Railway Industry Substance List – 376 chemicals to check
• IECSC Inventory of Existing Chemical Substances produced or imported in China – list of 45,612 substances
